Riding the Segway® PT feels like nothing you've ever experienced, because there's never been anything like it. Step on and your instinct will be to steady yourself, as you would on anything with two wheels. But almost immediately you'll realize that the Segway PT is balancing for you, almost like it has become an extension of you. Just lean forward a little and you'll see that the Segway PT isn't moving you on its own, it's moving in response to you and what you tell it to do.
Remember the dreams you had where you feel as if you could fly? You feel freedom, exhilaration, and confidence. You have the sensation of the ground moving beneath you, but you're not touching it. You are gliding above it. You get the sense of power and speed, yet you also feel a sense of safety and absolute control. It all feels natural, safe, and instinctive. That's what riding a Segway PT feels like.
Here's what others who have ridden the Segway PT have said about its intuitive, gliding nature:
"My verdict is that the Segway PT is great fun to ride, is safe and stable, and is a truly impressive use of digital technology. It is easy to learn, and in many ways is just plain amazing."
Walt Mossberg, Wall Street Journal
"Using a Segway is so intuitive that it feels as though
the thing has somehow been plugged into your
central nervous system."
"The Segway is incredibly stable, whether
standing still or moving."
